Monte Sereno Reviews

3 reviews
Monte Sereno is a great subsection of Los Gatos. Though it has a different name, Monte Sereno is basically incorporated into downtown Los Gatos, and is very centrally located in terms of grocery stores and Santa Cruz Ave with restaurants and shops. Because it is practically part of Los Gatos, still a great community to raise a family and to live.

I feel safe most of the time, could definitely use some more street lights though.
It is a fun place to live but not much to do if you are between the ages of 18-21.
